What you need to know about mental health.
One in five adults experience mental health conditions each year. That equals about 43.8 million adults in the U.S.
Mental health conditions are NOT caused by personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing.
They ARE medical conditions that can impact a person’s thinking, feeling or mood and may affect his or her ability to relate to others and function on a daily basis. Genetics, the structure of the brain, environment and lifestyle can all impact mental health.
